Sorts was kicked off more as a project than a fullblooded band in 1998 by Gates, a member of the first Estonian black metal act - The Grey Calamity. Later, Gates became known as, now already a former, guitar player of Loits and Manatark.
After writing some tracks, Sorts formed a live group that, over the years, consisted of numerous members from Estonian black metal scene's core bands like Tharaphita, Manatark, Loits, Must Missa, Urt, Realm of Carnivora, etc. Regrettably due to lack of time the band never had a chance to step on stage.
Sorts managed to launch a cd single named "Demons on the Ride" in 2000. The same track was also included in the compilation "Estnische Kriegskameraden" in 2004. Ten years after the band's creation, Sorts recorded a brand new ep called
“Made In Nightonia” which will be released by US label Regimental Records. Currently the band is recording their first full-length album that is set to be finished in spring 2010.
